Little Abbey: Shorts

L.A.: "Daddy, the sun is chasing us!"

Me: "Oh no! What are we going to do when it catches us?"

L.A.: "Don't worry daddy, the sun doesn't have arms."


Lesson learned recently: Parents of a three and a half year old need to stock up on super glue. I have fished out my bottle three out of the five days last week. An assortment of small clamps really helps too.


Scene: L.A. has said she was done playing after her bath for the third time, I have asked her to pick up all her floating toys and drain the water for the third time and when I enter the bathroom, she has done neither.

Me: "Pick up those toys are I am not coming in here again!"

L.A.: "Yes sir!"

Me: Thinking, wow, where did she learn to address me like that when....

L.A.: "Yes sir, three bags full. One for the master and one for the dame..."


L.A.: "Mama, I love you!"

Wife: "Ah... how sweet of you to say that."

L.A.: "My feet are wet."

Wife: "Did you knock over my glass of water on the floor?"

L.A.: "Mama, I love you!"

Brings back great memories of my kids. (Except that without these little reminders I can't remember them)

It starts at such a young age..................and by the time they are teens they've almost perfected it! Precious.
